Marijuana connoisseur paid to get high

DENVER, CO (WFLX) - You've heard of food critics, but now a Denver newspaper has come up with a first: a Marijuana critic. This man gets paid to get high and write about it.

His pen name is "William Breathes" and he reviews dispensaries and the quality of Medical Marijuana they sell. Medical Marijuana is legal to sell in Colorado, and William buys it to help him deal with chronic stomach pains.

A Denver camera crew followed him while he bought the pot and then reviewed it. "Try and taste the smoke as it comes out. It's got a good wood finish. After a few hits of it, you try to feel what type of buzz it is and what it's doing to your body medically."

Medical Marijuana is illegal in the state of Florida.
